Studio A in our South Courtyard
Two local silversmiths have formed Silver Tree Studio Ltd - we're delighted that they opened for business here at The Fold in September 2015. They make and design all their own jewellery, and welcome people to come and watch them working in the relaxed atmosphere of the studio, and to browse or buy items for sale.
They also sell work by other local artists including stained glass, fused glass, felting, paintings, prints and cards.
They aim to always use local suppliers and eco-friendly materials and practices wherever possible. All pieces are handmade with care making them extra special and ideal as a lovely gift or to treat yourself!

Studio 4 in the North Courtyard
Come and buy some of Juliette's beautiful hand-dyed yarn for your next project.
"I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with wool. It's diverse, so wearable, and so cleverly grown year after year by those wonderful sheep, and yet so generally under-appreciated. It makes me happy to be able to pass it in for others to enjoy. Although I have been dyeing for several years, I feel my journey is only just beginning. Here's to the journey!"
Studio 6 above the Fold Cafe
We provide giant interactive artworks for events; whether it's for a festival, charity, wedding or corporate event, we can illustrate your themes and ideas into a beautiful one-of-a-kind artwork for you and your guests to colour-in.
Everyone contributes to a canvas using paint pens and the result is a high quality artwork for you to keep and proudly display. A fantastic way to captivate clients, customers, friends or family; create lasting memories and make a magnificent masterpiece together.
We've sent artwork around to clients around the world and have worked with organisations such as Centre Parcs, Fred Perry, Absolute Vodka, Action for Children, Alzheimer's Society, Great Western Rail, Madcap and Robinsons at the Wimbledon Championships.
